Door County Public Health Department, in accordance to recent CDC review, is updating its methods to monitor the level of COVID-19 within our community.

The focus of our prevention efforts is on protecting people at high risk for severe illness from becoming infected and requiring hospitalization.

In the past, the number of positive cases was used to reflect the severity of disease. With the most recent change, weekly monitoring of hospitalizations and hospital capacity will be used to determine whether the level of COVID-19 and severe disease are either low, medium, or high in the community.

A community’s COVID-19 level is determined by a combination of three pieces of information: new hospitalizations for COVID-19, current hospital beds occupied by COVID 19 patients or hospital capacity, and new COVID-19 cases. 

LOW LEVEL - There is limited impact on the healthcare system and low amounts of severe disease in the community. Wearing a mask is personal preference. At this level you should:
  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccines
  • Get test if you have symptoms
MEDIUM LEVEL - More people are experiencing severe disease in the community and they're starting to see more impact on the healthcare system. Wearing a mask is a personal preference. At this level you should:
  • Talk to our healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions if you're at high risk for severe disease
  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccines 
  • Get tested if you have symptoms 
HIGH LEVEL -There is a high amount of people experiencing severe disease and high potential for healthcare systems strains. At this level you should:
  • Wear a mask indoors in public (including schools)
  • Get tested if you have symptoms
  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccines
